The Australian High commission in london have recognised Bluey with an award for Cultural Impact across the UK and the World

London’s iconic ‘Australia House‘ has been renamed ‘Bluey House‘ for 24 hours to celebrate the show’s global impact across the UK and the world.

As Bluey flags adorned the Australian Embassy, members of the public lining the streets for the London marathon were treated to an unforgettable moment of a musical marching band filling the air with the Bluey title music, alongside a surprise visit from Bluey herself.

“Bluey’s phenomenal success in the UK and globally is testament to the ingenuity and artistry of Australia’s creative industries. Bluey highlights the power of Australian stories to resonate with children and parents the world over.” 

The Australian High Commissioner

The award from the High Commissioner is the first of its kind and celebrates the spectacular growth of the show, which has now become the number one show on CBeebies in the UK.

“It is an honour to receive this award on behalf of everyone who helped bring Bluey to life. Our beautiful country is a character in the show just as much as any of the dogs, so to have brought it into the living rooms of the whole world, encouraging people to come and visit is something I’ll always be proud of.”

Joe Brumm, Creator of ‘Bluey’
